"I was boooooorn by the river...In this little ol' tent..."



"Here - at this final hour, in this quiet place - zenarchists has come to bid farewell to one of its brightest hopes -extinguished now, and gone from us forever. For LiveJournal is where he worked and where he struggled and fought - his home of homes, where his heart was, and where his people are - and it is, therefore, most fitting that we meet once again - in LiveJournal - to share these last moments with him. For zenarchists has ever been gracious to those who have loved her, have fought her, and have defended her honor even to the death.

It is not in the memory of humanity that this beleaguered, unfortunate, but nonetheless proud community has found a braver, more gallant young champion than this Discordian Saint who lies before us - unconquered still. I say the words again, as he would want me to : Discordian Saint - Discordian Saint englishpigdog, who was a master, was most meticulous in his use of words. Nobody knew better than he the power words have over minds of people. englishpigdog had stopped being a 'Troll' years ago. It had become too small, too puny, too weak a word for him. englishpigdog was bigger than that. englishpigdog had become a Discordian Saint and he wanted - so desperately - that we, that all his people, would become Discordian Saints too.

There are those who will consider it their duty, as friends of the zenarchists people, to tell us to revile him, to flee, even from the presence of his memory, to save ourselves by writing him out of the history of our turbulent times. Many will ask what zenarchists finds to honor in this stormy, controversial and bold young captain - and we will smile. Many will say turn away - away from this man, for he is not a man but a demon, a monster, a subverter and an enemy of the zenarchists - and we will smile. They will say that he is of hate - a fanatic, a racist - who can only bring evil to the cause for which you struggle! And we will answer and say to them : Did you ever talk to Brother englishpigdog? Did you ever touch him, or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? Did he ever do a mean thing? Was he ever himself associated with violence or any public disturbance? For if you did you would know him. And if you knew him you would know why we must honor him.

Consigning these mortal remains to the Internet, the common mother of all, secure in the knowledge that what we place in the ground is no more now a man - but a seed - which, after the winter of our discontent, will come forth again to meet us. And we will know him then for what he was and is - a Saint - our own Discordian shining Saint! - who didn't hesitate to die, because he loved us so."
